Moonlight doesn't have Silverlight's DRM, and never will. Wanna watch Netflix? You need that DRM.

A situation that HTML5 would not change unless there was a similarly suitable DRM technology on *n*x that Netflix could use. Had there been greater TPM proliferation / platform adoption, it may have been easier to enable DRM for scenarios such as this on open source OSes because the TPM would provide secure key management.
